In the beginning...Genesis 1 and the Song of Creation
Transcript of In the beginning...Genesis 1 and the Song of Creation
God created the heavens
and the earth
Process or purpose?
The Song of Creation
The purpose of the universe
Nature is an accident
"The Universe is just one of those things that happen from time to time" - Physicist Edward Tryon
Chaos and randomness
"It is good"
War between primeval gods
Marduk slays the chaos dragon Tiamat and uses the two halves of her body to make heaven and earth
In the image of God
Made to do the gods' dirty work
“In a universe of blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won’t find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind pitiless indifference.”
It is not good
Broken relationship = sin
The world is broken. It is not always good.
We do not experience the delight of God.
The image of God is shattered.
